All That I Know is Nothing is the dance progeny of Being Moved, a nine week Butoh Performance intensive. At the heart of this novel project are non-professional dancers who take up the challenge to dance original choreography, showcasing their courage, curiosity, and singular determination on stage with the support of full production qualities. The participants are selected through an application process and the chosen ones embark on an adventure delving into a true desire for a deep personal connection to embodied movement. Performance skills are developed and creativity is fostered through improvisation, and chorography. The Being moved participants bring an enthusiastic and courageous willingness to explore unknown territory. In doing so, they cannot help but be transformed by the process. 

Meshi Chavez’s conception for the project is inspired. “It is my belief that performance is not just for the artistic elite, that everyday people are made of movement and with that movement is an inherent and profound beauty. With adroit direction and focus, the quotidian can, in an instant, transform into something moving and delightful.”

Performers: Sara Alizadeh, Mara Steen, Zebith Thalden, Teresa Vanderkin, Jamuna Chiarini, Joe Mclaughlin, Lilly Lewis
